Q: I want to replace an Epson printer and standalone flarbed scanner (Epson V330 Photo) basically to save space, but also to add standalone copier capability. I am thinking of MFP and look at 2 models: HP OJ 3830 and Epson XP 830. The latter is currently on sale at half its normal price. My main concern is not loosing too much on scanning quality, although i rarely need the perfect picture quality. I don t intend to "print" photo either.

Scan, Fax, and Photocopy

The four main functions of printers are: printing, scanning, photocopying, and faxing. Either your device will be print only, print/scan/copy, or an all-in-one printer that does printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. Note that scanning and copying almost always come together, since the hardware for these features overlaps significantly. Generally speaking, all-in-one printers are larger, so those with space constraints may find this to be an inconvenience. Additionally, printers with a fax feature are typically more expensive. It would be wise to only consider this feature if you plan to fax often. If not, you’ll be satisfied with a print/scan/copy device.
